The Weekender
If there’s one thing about AirPods that isn’t magical, it’s the frustrating (and willfully murky) process for updating the earbuds’ firmware.
In our lead story this week, Cult of Mac writer Ed Hardy lays out a simple plan for how Apple could turn that around.
Elsewhere, we’ve got the latest Apple news and rumors (including a whopper about Cupertino’s quest to build an autonomous car), plus how-tos, hot deals and loads of reviews.
Enjoy your weekend reading!
